Chae Kyung
Ghost in the Machine


Kyung Chae attempts to arrange a marriage of polarities: painting and photography, East and West, traditional and modern, analog and digital, science and art. Through these marriages, she aims to inspire a new way of introspection into our modern world of technology. She humanizes technology and uses an interesting mix of mediums such as x-ray photography, Korean paper and ink to explore the obscure organic nature in technological objects; just like organs being parts of a body, it is the same with the mechanisms of a technological gadget.
